As a priest, Don Bosco continued to reach out to others, especially to poor and uneducated young people. He used whatever means he had at his disposal?sports, acrobatic feats, magic tricks, kind words, a warm meal?to gather and teach the faith to young people, giving many a chance for a brighter future. For this work of education and charity to succeed, he had an extraordinary trust in God's providence and the intercession of Mary, Help of Christians. The model that Don Bosco developed for working with children and teaching them the faith was so successful it is still used today. Recommended for ages 9-12. Copyright 2015.
